Novelist Stephen King announced that he will publish Doctor Sleep on September 24, 2013.
Scribner and Hodder & Stoughton will publish the book, a sequel to The Shining. While accepting the Mason Prize at George Mason University last year, King read an excerpt from the sequel (video embedded above).
io9 has more about the reading: “Doctor Sleep, his upcoming novel about a grown-up Danny Torrance from The Shining. In the book, Danny is a hospice worker who uses his powers to help ill patients to pass away without pain. Unfortunately, he runs afoul of a gang of wandering psychic vampires who feed on people’s energy.”
